Cipher Complex Preview



After eight years of producing commercially successful titles for various leading publishers, Edge of Reality has decided the time is right to give life to its own internal vision.

Cipher Complex, the first completely original title from the company, is an intense, cinematic military combat game that will deliver a brutal shot of adrenaline straight to the hearts of next-generation gamers.

A recon satellite is mysteriously blasted from orbit, and when diplomatic requests for information are stonewalled, the US government is forced to call in its last resort – Operative John Cipher. Charged with uncovering the truth by any means necessary, Cipher is going behind enemy lines to extract information the hard way.

The game will focus on something the team call "aggressive infiltration." Instead of sitting in a dark corner waiting for a guard to walk by, players will actively push through obstacles to achieve their goals. Players avoid detection through speed and lightning-fast executions -- not from hiding and avoiding confrontation.

The game will be released on the xbox360 and Ps3 in the erm... sometime in 2007

Aggressive infiltration. Right. Does look nifty though. In a philosophical sense, of course.

phillally speaking it does, you are once again most erudite in your observation...... aggressive probably means you get to break peoples necks and stuff... or maybe you get a chance to curse and swear at your assailants, which would be neat..

Again, is this the game that totally steals my recent covert activities into N. Korea?

elderly said...

Fraid so..... the killing with a paperclip and plastic straw have all been copied using hidden motion capture cameras trained on your every move in NKorea..... nothing is sacred anymore.... least you found out through a friend....

gnome said...

(gnome tries to shut himself up)

(really tries)

North Korea....

The Elderly said...

.... I suppose when your operating clandestinally you don't get a choice where your posted..... shame really!... barbados would be nice.... or maybe a military coup in Fiji... oh wait... im giving too much away...

cough!..... tea? mr gnome, it'll ease that particular burden you is carrying......

gnome said...

Uhm... tea... yes

(mumble---grumble.... bloody..mnh... imperialist scum...)

DEITRIX said...

Atleast you will be able to do some fully hand to hand moves in this game, unlike spinter cell where he only can do a few set moves...

Should be interesting- they compared the game character to Jason Bourne...!!! Which gives me a big smile!!

The Elderly said...

such lovely custard creams.... i beseech thee Gnome try some, their delicious... how's your tea....?

...jason bourne as in the bourne identity jason or mrs bournes young lad..?

gnome said...

Fine tea. Almost makes me think of converting to Islam and starting a Jihad. Are ther Muslim gnomes? Do we get the 40 virgins in paradise too?

The Elderly said...

not wishing to envoke a fatwah, i beleive i don't know what your talking about Mr. Gnome....

(hi Gnome this is me, utilizing that ninja mind reading techique you taught me......

the virgins exist, but i beleive it's the same bunch every time, which makes me think theres not that much hanky panky in paradise...)

gnome said...

Oh. My mistake...

(gnome enters ninja speak, to actually express his distrust to virgins and state his preferal to non-virgins)

The Elderly said...

no to worry mr. Gnome, quite understandable really.....

(entering ninja psychic chat....
the more i think about it, it does begin to sound like purgatory.... 40 of em..... too much coaxing for my tastes.....)

gnome said...

directly going to ninja p-chat mode..

(... guess some of 'em could do the dishes or take the dog for a walk...)

The Elderly said...

weather if fearsome this time of the year... cough!

(...indeed they will have to be useful virgins..... dinner cooking, sock washing and belly scratching... aren't too far a stretch either....productivity is the key....)

gnome said...

Ah! Bliss!

:)

The Elderly said...

bliss? where?

(gets out binoculars....)

where? feck, first time they've been spotted in Ireland since the divil war.......

gnome said...

There!

The Elderly said...

(looks at gnome, who isn't pointing anywhere.......)

Where, there?

gnome said...

There!

The Elderly said...

(pointing to the foothills.....)

gnome said...

Yes! :)

The Elderly said...

(raises binoculars to his eyes.....) oh dear too late, bloody bliss has dissapeared behind some thick vegetation....... what a pity.....
